New Youth Leaders for West

West Limerick's new youth leaders

West Limerick’s new youth leaders

Fifteen young people from West Limerick have just completed a youth leadership training programme with Limerick Youth Service (LYS) at the Burren Outdoor Activity Centre, Co. Clare.

The teens, who are members of Askeaton-Ballykisteen, Ballingarry and Newcastlewest youth clubs respectively, enjoyed two days of workshops & activities in the Banner County.

Delivered by a team of LYS youth workers, the leadership training programme is accredited by Youth Scotland  and equips young people with the skills and confidence to assume leadership roles in their youth clubs and community.

‘The training programme covers a variety of topics such as teamwork, communication skills, body language and organising events,’ said Mary Hart, LYS.

‘The skills the young people have learned will stand to them as they progress to leadership roles with their respective youth club/group,’ added Mary, youth worker, West Limerick.

Away from the workshops, the young people took part in activities such as abseiling and kayaking while enjoying the fresh ocean air on the Wild Atlantic Way.

LYS wishes to congratulate the young people on their success and wish them the very best in the future.

Askeaton-Ballykisteen, Ballingarry and Newcastlewest youth clubs are affiliated with LYS which supports over thirty volunteer led youth clubs across Limerick.

A member of Youth Work Ireland, Limerick Youth Service remains committed to connecting with young people and supporting them to reach their full potential.
